I grew up in this tiny little village appropriately named Security with a slew of families that took part in raising us all. The McAlexanders were one of those families. Charla and my older sister Darla...I know, right? 😊 they were besties. Darla's husband Ron and Charla's brother Bruce were best friends...I think you get the picture! I was just the little sister that always wanted to hang out with them. The little sister that was so envious of their style in high school, that they were pom pom girls..yes all of it. The wonderful thing about a place like Security is you have lots of friends and they stay lifelong friends. There comes a day when the age difference doesn't matter and you grow into an adult friendship that lasts for 50+ years. I struggle with losing these two precious souls within such a short period of time. I know Darla was waiting to meet Charla in Heaven with open arms. Friends for life and forever after. We can all only pray that we have such a loving sister like relationship like the La La girls had. I am so happy they allowed me to have happy memories with them my whole life..❤❤

Charla was one of the kindest people I have had the pleasure to call my friend. She was always so sweet and supportive. I will always look back fondly to our drinks on her porch and her never ending supply of crackers, cheeses, and meats ready to go when I go home from work and wanted to chat on her front porch.

When I was living with grandma she would always walk downstairs to check on me. Literally all the time and of course being 18 it was annoying in the moment. Now I just wish to hear her knocking on my door.

Charla came to Kansas in summer time for the summer. She never liked to come to the farm if we were dressing chickens. Sometimes Bruce and I would tell we weren’t going to just to get her come out. Bruce and I liked kidding her with the chickens. Charla I love you and you will be missed by all your family and friends

Charla was a beautiful person, always smiling, caring and compassionate towards others. I never heard an unkind word from her, she was so sweet. Charla will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. God has her in his arms, safe now!
